This telephone has been totally stripped down to components and re built after each part has been cleaned and polished. This included the dial as you can see in the pictures of this process. This one is a lovely deep shade of red and in beautiful condition. The base is marked 1956 and the handset 1952 which may mean the handset has been replaced for a slightly earlier one. This is how it came to me and so I try not to swap things around to much. It is fully converted and ready to use with a standard UK plug. If you want it to work on any network including Voip and have * # and stored numbers all through the original dial and workings then opt for the pulse to tone unit in the checkout. All parts are a good colour match with only the slightest variation as is perfectly normal. Take a look at the video to judge for yourself and I think you will see it is amazing. It has been fitted with an electronic microphone a very best quality hand plaited braided handset cord, small bell inside and a quality red round plastic line in cord to GPO specification. The small bell is fitted with a spacial bracket to allow it to be removed with no sign it was ever there. It has a GPO No12 dial with an upgraded alpha numeric dial face from F to L. Please take a look at the pictures and video to see the work that has gone into making this such a stunning telephone. It has the dial label it came with but you are welcome to have me make one with your personal information at no extra charge and keep the one on it now. In my opinion quality telephones like this will make a good investment and one you can use and enjoy.
